Working both with oil and acrylic, Andrew Brown enjoys pushing the limits of

what can be accomplished with mediums, creating depth, texture, and authenticity

in his pieces both abstract and representational. After studying under his

father, acclaimed artist Gordon Brown, for a number of years, Andrew has

found his own distinct style.

 

He utilizes layering and destruction; building up and knocking down paint to

create vivid lines, striking depth, and detailed texture. Andrew further pushes the

limits of his art by hand picking the richest pigments and mixing his own

paint, giving him the freedom to manipulate the properties of the oil paint

itself. Constantly growing and learning, Andrew Brown never limits himself to

one process of painting, and aims to further experiment with various techniques

in his craft.

 

“Painting to me isn’t just about the end result. It’s about the process, the chaos,

and the ups and downs of creating a final piece of work. Getting out of my

comfort zone and breaking down my ego by confronting thoughts like a

perfect painting has to be just of the things that draws me back to abstract

paintings again and again.”
